Teaching the Way of Jesus Christ, Holy Family Catholic School empowers students to become joyful disciples, lifelong learners, and compassionate leaders.
Holy Family Catholic School aspires to provide a Christ-centered education focusing on academic excellence enhanced by service opportunities, physical education, fine arts, and current and evolving technology. Led by a passionate faculty and staff, we will support an enrollment that meets our facility’s capacity while maintaining our small, nurturing community.
"Learn, Serve, and Lead" exemplifies three traits our students focus on throughout their education. As future leaders, they must first learn their faith by serving as Jesus did. Furthermore, this motto extends to their academic and fine arts classes, as we encourage our scholars to learn with an open and Christian mind.
Holy Family Catholic School is identifiably Catholic in our culture and community spirit. Academic attitudes and instructional programs are built on this strong foundation of Christian principles. Our primary goal for our students is the development of the total person through programs which nurture spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth.
History of Holy Family Catholic School
Holy Family Catholic School began as St. Alice School in June of 1945. Staffed by the Sisters of Saint Mary of Namur, the school was located at the corner of Locke Avenue and Camp Bowie Boulevard. In January 1961, Monsignor Vincent J. Wolf was appointed pastor of St. Alice Church and in 1962 property was acquired on Pershing Avenue for the relocation of the church and school. The name of the new church and school was changed to Holy Family to emphasize the unique sacredness of family life. Holy Family Catholic School was dedicated on September 27, 1970. At this time, the school was under the direction of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word. Since 1979, the entire faculty has been composed of lay staff. The interior of the school was extensively remodeled in 1984. In 1993 a gym and new 7th and 8th grade classrooms were added. We celebrated our 50th anniversary in October 1995, and our 70th anniversary in June 2015.
